Dried out clay? Here's how to recover it.
Just take your broken or dried up pieces of clay and put them into a jar with about 1-4 tablespoons of DISTILLED water, depending on how full the jar is, and close tightly.
Give it a shake and let it sit for a couple of days. Give it a shake every day or until it softens up and you can mash it with your fingers. If it is still too dry add a tsp of water again, close and shake it up. Let it sit for another day. Works like a charm!
If you have castings that have warped whilst drying you could also lay your pieces on a damp wash cloth and cover lightly with plastic wrap. The pieces will absorb the moisture and become pliable again.
When you open a new packet of clay, but don't use it all up, then you'll need to keep what's left in an air tight box. Wrapping it in a baby wipe or wet paper towel will help keep it moist and ready for use at a later date.
